Ole Miss QB Says Players Go To Bed Hungry

In late March, UConn's Shabazz Napier caused a stir when he said there were some nights he went to bed hungry. People scoffed at the idea of a star player not being able to find an open dining hall or afford food on his own, but a couple weeks later–total coincidence on the timing–the NCAA changed its rules to allow… » 7/18/14 4:17pm 7/18/14 4:17pm

Ted Valentine Won't Help Marshall Henderson Off The Court


After baiting Mick Cronin into an even more childish meltdown than he was already having against UConn last weekend, referee Ted Valentine is back on the radar because he refused to help Marshall Henderson up off the court against Arkansas last night. Valentine couldn't help because was too busy calling a foul on… » 3/06/14 4:40pm 3/06/14 4:40pm

How Marshall Henderson Gets Away With Being Marshall Henderson

On Sunday night, we said goodbye to Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson, college basketball's most exciting troll, a sort of human "u mad bro?" who did everything to antagonize his opponents short of popping motorcycle wheelies at halfcourt with their girlfriends riding pillion. He and the 12th-seeded Rebels lost a… » 3/27/13 2:15pm 3/27/13 2:15pm

How Nerlens Noel Won The Kentucky-Ole Miss Game With Two Fearless Blocks

Superstar freshman Nerlens Noel swatted away 12 shots during last night's Kentucky-Ole Miss game while scoring just two points on 0-2 shooting from the field and 2-8 from the free-throw line. Noel's stat line suggests he had a classic impacted-the-game-with-his-defense performance, which he did, but it also fails to… » 1/30/13 3:05pm 1/30/13 3:05pm

Ole Miss's Marshall Henderson Saves The Day With A 35-Foot Buzzer-Beater

Ole Miss's Marshall Henderson, who's on his fourth school in four years, has a pregame routine. After the shootaround, he sets up at half-court and chucks up a few. Before Monday's game at Vanderbilt, he nailed six or seven in a row. When it came down to a 35-foot buzzer-beater to save the Rebels' winning streak,… » 1/16/13 9:55am 1/16/13 9:55am

The Ugly, Racially Charged Fight Over A Confederate Mascot. In Vermont.

My small Vermont hometown has made the national news circuit on just a handful of occasions since I was a kid: the Bush-Cheney arrest warrant, the public nudity ban, the closing of the nuclear power plant, the annual cow parade, and the time my high school retired Colonel Reb as our mascot. » 10/25/10 1:00pm 10/25/10 1:00pm
